The final covering for your seeds is the key to successful germination. A fine even covering of compost is easy to achieve using this Potting Sieve. An added advantage is the Sieve puts the compost where it's needed not all over the bench and the floor.
Designed by Sophie Conran for Burgon and Ball this is a beautiful, funtional and robust tool part of a range which has been created specially for gardeners with smaller hands without compromising on practicality.
The packaging for this Compost Scoop is a work of art in itself making it an ideal gift. The box is duck egg blue with a clear photograph of the product and a full description within the lid. The box is closed with a clever magnetic catch which holds the lid firmly shut. Durable and stylish
Measuring 24.5cm by 10cm across it holds sufficient compost to cover a seed tray without being heavy and unwieldy. The sieve is made of mirror polished stainless steel, a smooth and rust resistant material, joined to a natural waxed beechwood handle. The solid brass ferrule ensures a secure join between the sieve and the handle. A quick wipe over when you have finished potting up is all that's needed to keep this tool in pristine condition.
For really efficient and successful planting the Compost Scoop, another tool in the Sophie Conran range, would be an ideal partner for this Potting Sieve. Together they could be a fantastic gift and Useful Stuff is offering both tools at the special price of £30 a saving of over 10% on the price of both tools.
